Feel like a celebrity as you lift off in luxury and catch sight of the breathtaking New York City skyline. Fly by Times Square, the Empire State Building, and greet the Statue of Liberty eye-to-eye.
Do you want to see more? Who could blame you? Stay longer in your comfortable helicopter seat while you enjoy the best helicopter tour in NYC and see all of the sights included in the Liberty Harbor tour, then extend your route northbound to Upper Manhattan. Your crew flies you past midtown and all of Central Park up to Harlem and the Harlem River, Columbia University, Grant’s Tomb, the Bronx, Yankee Stadium, and over the infamous George Washington Bridge. If you’re looking for an even longer helicopter ride than check our Grand City option!
View the mountainous Palisades Cliffs and make a turn south toward the most popular parts of eastern New Jersey, like Hoboken, the birthplace of Frank Sinatra. The Big City tour gives you a unique perspective into exciting worlds and sights impossible to see from any other vantage point!
